Futures Trading Programs and Data

Many sites exist touting their ability to make you rich trading futures. Take it from an old trader. It takes time, patience, study and discipline to be successful. Start your program by paper trading. This site includes an evaluation of some of the best sites on the web as well as a program I have written to help you through paper trading. It allows you to track trades, or to use the program in a workshop or club setting to learn trading with a group of peers. It has an extensive help file which should be sufficient to understand the program set up and operation. Paper trade first and do it for several years! Several data files from very volatile periods in the history of grains and livestock are also included. New charts and data sets will be added from time to time.
